"Girl Boy Bakla Tomboy" Earns P200 Million in 6 Days

"Girl Boy Bakla Tomboy" Earns P200 Million in 6 Days

Viva Films and Star Cinema's official entry to MMFF 2013 "Girl Boy Bakla Tomboy" continued its strong box office showing with ticket sales passing the P200-million mark on Monday, December 30.

Vice Ganda, who plays four characters in the movie directed by Wenn Deramas, reported his film's latest achievement on his official Twitter account.

According to Star Cinema Adprom Mico del Rosario, GBBT breached the P200-million mark as of 1 p.m. on Monday - less than a week after it opened on Christmas Day.

The movie, which was named second best picture during the MMFF awards night last Friday, has consistently ranked among the top grossing entries in this year's film fest, along with another comedy flick, "My Little Bossings," and the horror film "Pagpag."

According to del Rosario, the box-office take of "Girl Boy Bakla Tomboy" is higher than that of "Sisterakas" at this point last year.

"Sisterakas," which also starred Vice Ganda, together with Ai Ai delas Alas and Kris Aquino, went on to become the highest grossing local movie of all time.

Kris Aquino Transfers to GMA-7 this 2014

Kris Aquino Transfers to GMA-7 this 2014

Kris Aquino returns to where she though she belongs.

Seventeen years after leaving GMA-7 to  host her own talk show "Today with Kris Aquino" on ABS-CBN and a number of hit movie and TV assignments produced by the Kapamilya network, the Queen of All Media is now 90% sure she is going back to the Kapuso network this 2014.

According to a report by Pilipino Star Ngayon columnist Salve Asis, Kris Aquino had decided to transfer to GMA Network and “no amount of pressure from anybody” can stop her from doing so.

It can be remembered that Kris Aquino and Boy Abunda were among the original hosts of the long-running Kapuso showbiz oriented program “Startalk” in the 90s. She also hosted a daily lifestyle show called “Kris” from 1994 to 1996 before she transferred to ABS-CBN to become host of “The Buzz” and her daily lifestyle show “Today With Kris Aquino.”

After hosting various game shows and talks shows and starring in various teleseryes on ABS-CBN, the Queen of All Media is now making the big move and the reason, according to the report, is a project with Vic Sotto aside from the professional and financial offers of the Kapuso Network.

GMA-7's think tank wasted no time to create a show that will surely give ABS-CBN's Dyesebel a run for their own money.

The Kapuso network launches its newest fantaserye titled "Kambal Sirena" featuring Louise delos Reyes in the title role set to compete with Kapamilya's adaptation of Mars Ravelo's classic "Dyesebel" starring Kim Chiu.

Which mermaid show do you think will reign supreme on primetime this 2014?

“Edge Of Tomorrow” Trailer Starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt

“Edge Of Tomorrow” Trailer Starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt

Oscar® nominee Tom Cruise (the “Mission: Impossible” films, “Jerry Maguire”) and Emily Blunt (“The Devil Wears Prada,” “Looper”) star in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ sci-fi thriller “Edge of Tomorrow,” under the direction of Doug Liman (“The Bourne Identity,” “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”).

Watch the film's teaser trailer below:

The epic action of “Edge of Tomorrow” unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world.

Major William Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop - forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again.

But with each battle, Cage becomes able to engage the adversaries with increasing skill, alongside Special Forces warrior Rita Vrataski (Blunt). And, as Cage and Rita take the fight to the aliens, each repeated encounter gets them one step closer to defeating the enemy.

The international cast also includes Bill Paxton (“Aliens,” “2 Guns”), Kick Gurry (Australian TV’s “Tangle”), Dragomir Mrsic (“Snabba Cash II”), Charlotte Riley (“World Without End”), Jonas Armstrong (BBC TV’s “Robin Hood”), and Franz Drameh (“Attack the Block”).

Liman is directing “Edge of Tomorrow” from a screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie and Jez Butterworth & John-Henry Butterworth, based on the acclaimed novel All You Need is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka. Erwin Stoff produces, along with Tom Lassally, Jason Hoffs, Gregory Jacobs and Jeffrey Silver. The executive producers are Doug Liman, Dave Bartis, Joby Harold, Hidemi Fukuhara, and Bruce Berman, with Kim Winther and Tim Lewis serving as co-producers.

The behind-the-scenes team includes Academy Award®-winning director of photography Dion Beebe (“Memoirs of a Geisha”), production designer Oliver Scholl (“Jumper,” “Independence Day”), editor James Herbert (“Sherlock Holmes,” “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows”), costume designer Kate Hawley (upcoming “Pacific Rim”), and Oscar®-nominated visual effects supervisor Nick Davis (“The Dark Knight”).
“Edge of Tomorrow” is the first motion picture to be shot at the recently christened Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden.

Opening across the Philippines on June 5, 2014 in 3D, 2D and 35mm formats, “Edge of Tomorrow” is distributed Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Lloyd Lee and Shamcey Supsup Wedding Kiss, Vows (Video)

Lloyd Lee and Shamcey Supsup Wedding Kiss, Vows (Video)

After three years of blissful relationship, Shamcey Supsup and Lloyd Lee exchanged wedding vows at the Church of the Risen Lord inside the University of the Philippines campus in Diliman, Quezon City on Sunday, December 29.

The groom's wedding vow:

“First impression ko sa’yo, sabi ko ‘Wow nanalo ito sa pageant. Bukod sa matalino, maganda and sexy grabe.’ Hindi pa nagtatapos doon. Nung nag-smile ka, wala na. The rest was history. 'Yung time na 'yun, hindi ko talaga na-imagine na possible kita makatuluyan lalo na kakapanalo mo pa lang sa pageant. Feeling ko parang bad timing. Sana nakilala kita dati pa. Baka siguro may chance. Pero simula nung nakausap kita, hindi ko talaga mapigilang hindi ma-curious sa iyo.

“Hindi ko in-expect na kabaligtaran ka ng iniisip ko. Sobrang down to earth and napaka cowboy mo kasama. Naalala ko noong unang pinag-usapan natin, magko-commute ka papunta sa gym tapos sasamahan mo ako mag-date sa UP, kakain tayo ng fishball and mag-UP Ikot. Ang simple lang ng mga gusto nating gawin pero napakasaya. Every time kasama kita, sobrang happy at complete ng nararamdaman ko. Sobrang incomparable.

“Yung values and principles mo, sobrang honest and sobrang bait. Wala na akong hihilingin pa. Sobrang strong ng faith mo kay God. You’re really a girl that every man would be lucky to have for a wife. Sobrang happy ko ngayon.

“I always thank God for giving me you. Alam mo mahal, you’re everything I ever wished for. Now that I have you, I promise nothing will change between us. I will continue to love you unconditionally and forever be in love with you. I promise to always put you first in our relationship. Wala ng you, wala ng me. It’s us. I promise to respect you, honor you, be faithful to you, share my life with you and be with you always.

“I promise to comfort you when you’re stressed. I will encourage you to achieve all your goals, laugh with you, cry with you. I will grow with you in mind and spirit. I will always be open and honest to you, never take you for granted as long as we both shall live. I love you so much.”

The bride's wedding vow:

“Dati takot ako magmahal kasi parang hindi naman totoo ang true love na kadalasan sa hiwalayan din naman mapupunta ang mga relasyon. At baka binobola mo lang ako para sagutin kita. But now we are here in the Church just like what you told me a week after we met. Now you can finally say to my face ‘I told you so.’

“When you came into my life, everything changed. I changed. You made me believe that there’s a love worth living and fighting for. And then I realized you’re the reason why God didn’t let me have any relationships before. Because He wanted to prepare me for you, only you.

“He made it perfect. And because this precious love is from God, I promise to take good care of it, to constantly fall in love with you every day, to support you in whatever you do, and to be by your side in whatever circumstances. I promise to be your best friend, your travel partner, and the one you can tell just anything to. I promise not to let the sun go down without settling our conflicts and to shower you with hugs and kisses when you’re feeling down. I promise to be less stressed and to be more positive in life because I know that when I am happy, you are happy too. Thank you for sharing this lifetime with me. I have the perfect husband. I love you mahal ko.”

TV5 Re-airs Gilas Pilipinas vs. South Korea Basketball Match on New Year's Eve

TV5 Re-airs Gilas Pilipinas vs. South Korea Basketball Match on New Year's Eve

Due to insistent public demand, Pinoy basketball fans will once again be treated to this year’s most historic sports moment – the Gilas Pilipinas versus South Korea game that propelled the team to the 2014 FIBA World Cup. The much-talked about semifinals game will air this Tuesday, December 31 at 8PM on TV5.

South Korea had been the Philippines’ rival for the dream to reach the World championship or a place in the Olympics in the past. And after years of heartbreaks and frustration, Gilas Pilipinas finally won against the Asian contender and booked one of the three seats to the FIBA World Championship in Spain. The momentous game sent Pinoys crying with tears of joy as the country finally returned to being an Asian powerhouse.

Gilas Pilipinas head coach Chot Reyes remembered that poignant moment in August.

It was like a script out of a Hollywood movie. Umiyak ako nung nanalo Talk ‘N Text, pero hindi ganito,” Reyes said of the moment where he was shown crying on the team’s bench after they won.

Sports5, the sports arm of TV5, brought the most comprehensive coverage of the 27th FIBA Asia Championship last August to over 90 Filipino viewers here and to millions more in 41 countries around the world. The heart-stopping game also made TV5 the primetime winner in the ratings game last August.

No, it's not KC Concepcion nor Kristine Hermosa and Erich Gonzales who will play in the Kapamilya TV adaptation of Mars Ravelo's classic novel Dyesebel.

According to a report by Salve Asis on her Pilipino Star column on Monday, Kim Chiu is the final choice to portray the much-coveted role.

The "Bride For Rent" star is currently on her swimming lesson and will start shooting for the role anytime after the New Year's celebration.

"Dyesebel," the love-lorn mermaid created by award-winning Pinoy comics novelist Mars Ravelo, will return to local television via an ABS-CBN adaptation in 2014.

2013 Most Controversial Love Affairs

2013 Most Controversial Love Affairs

On Sunday, December 29, ABS-CBN's talk show “Buzz ng Bayan” listed down the love affairs in 2013 that have shaken the world of show business.

The list, dubbed as the “Most Controversial Love Affairs of 2013,” looked back at different relationships which have ended or began in the past year. All of them made news headlines and even dominated various social networking sites, particularly Twitter.

The following love affairs made it to the talk show’s list:

Ai Ai delas Alas and Jed Salang

Last May, Ai Ai delas Alas shocked the public when she revealed in an exclusive “The Buzz” interview that she and her husband Jed Salang have already separated. Accusing Salang of physically and verbally abusing her, delas Alas said she has decided to leave their home a month after getting married. The estranged couple tied the knot in Las Vegas last April 3. The comedienne left their home on May 2.

Sunshine Cruz and Cesar Montano

Last January, netizens were surprised when Sunshine Cruz turned to Instagram to confront starlet Krista Miller, whose recent posts on the same image-sharing site show items allegedly given to her by Cesar Montano. Cruz and Montano were married in 2000, and have three daughters. The couple’s rift snow balled into a court battle and they are now living separately.

Angel Locsin and Phil Younghusband/Luis Manzano and Jennylyn Mercado

Last October, Luis Manzano finally confirmed that he and his then girlfriend, actress Jennylyn Mercado have called it quits. Manzano said he and Mercado had an amicable split. Manzano also stressed that there is no third party involved in the breakup.

Just a few days after Manzano’s admission, Angel Locsin also confirmed reports that she and boyfriend Phil Younghusband have ended their relationship. Locsin said the break-up was mutual and there was no third party was involved.

Locsin is Manzano’s former girlfriend.

Billy Crawford and Nikki Gil

After being together for more than four years, Kapamilya stars Billy Crawford and Nikki Gil ended their relationship, which shocked people within and outside showbiz. In an interview on the ABS-CBN entertainment talk show “The Buzz” last July, Crawford denied rumors of a “third party” behind the split, saying that “it all boils down to me.” He also said that he “forgot” who he was after nearly 26 years of being in the entertainment industry.

Heart Evangelista and Chiz Escudero

Amid the upcoming campaign for the mid-term elections in March, the parents of Heart Evangelista expressed their strong objection to the actress’ relationship with Sen. Francis "Chiz" Escudero, detailing instances when they felt "disrespected" by the lawmaker whom they accused of being "arrogant" and an "alcoholic." Escudero and Evangelista denied the allegations made by the actress’ parents. The two are currently still together and Evangelista is reportedly now in good terms again with her dad.

Freddie Aguilar and 16-year-old wife Jovi Gatdula

Last October, "Anak" hitmaker Freddie Aguilar openly admitted that he is in a relationship with a 16-year-old girl. The 60-year-old singer made the confirmation shortly after he was given the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 5th Star Awards for Music in the same month. The two tied the knot last month.

Janine Tugonon and Jaypee Santos

Miss Universe 2012 first runner-up Janine Tugonon confirmed last March that she and boyfriend Jaypee Santos have ended their relationship. Tugonon, who appeared on "KrisTV" with Santos, nonchalantly admitted they have called it quits. The reason for the breakup is reportedly Tugonon's attraction to The Script's lead vocalist Danny O'Donoghue.

Venus Raj and Andrei Felix

Last May, beauty queen-turned-television host Venus Raj admitted that she and Andrei Felix have ended their one-year relationship. Raj said at the time that there was no longer any chance of getting back together with her ex-boyfriend. Raj also admitted that their break-up happened over the phone.

Shamcey Supsup and Lloyd Lee

On the other hand, Miss Universe 2011 third runner-up Shamcey Supsup saw her love life lead to marriage as she and boyfriend Lloyd Lee decided to get married on December 29. Supsup and Lee first met during the birthday-cum-victory party of the beauty queen in May 2011. This then led to their first date which eventually developed into a relationship. Supsup got engaged to Lee for over a year before they finally tied the knot.

Lino Cayetano and Fille Cainglet

TV director and Taguig congressman Lino Cayetano has tied the knot with former Ateneo volleyball player Fille Cainglet last December 27. According to a “Buzz ng Bayan” report, Cainglet is 12 years younger than Cayetano. They first met each other during a volleyball tournament in Taguig last summer.

Maja Salvador and Gerald Anderson

After evading the media for so long about the real score of his supposed blossoming romance with Maja Salvador, Gerald Anderson eventually admitted last May that the “Ina Kapatid Anak” actress is already his girlfriend.

In a teaser posted by StarStudio magazine for its June 2013 issue, Anderson was quoted as saying “Yes, I’m in love with Maja Salvador” and “Yes, she’s my girlfriend.”

The romance between Anderson and Salvador made headlines back in January after actress Kim Chiu expressed regret over her "wasted" friendship with Salvador. Anderson was Chiu’s former boyfriend, while Salvador was her erstwhile best friend.

Sarah Geronimo and Matteo Guidicelli

Just when everyone thought that Sarah Geronimo and Gerald Anderson would become a couple, things turned into different directions for the two Kapamilya stars as far as their personal lives were concerned.

Anderson, who previously courted Geronimo, ended up being in a relationship with Maja Salvador. Geronimo, on the other hand, has consistently been linked to actor Matteo Guidicelli since the early part of 2013.

This was when Guidicelli joined Geronimo on her US concert series in June. This was followed by a report that the “Galema” actor was the only showbiz personality seen at Geronimo's private birthday party in July.

However, both stars have remained quiet about their closeness, with Geronimo saying, "This time gusto kong makita kung gaano kasinsero ang tao na 'yon o ako din." - ABS-CBNNews.com

TIME Picks Top 10 Photos of 2013, Philippines Included

TIME Picks Top 10 Photos of 2013, Philippines Included

More than ever, photography has become the predominant means for us to communicate. An absolutely astounding number of pictures are shared every single day — half a billion, and rising. And yet somehow, even amid this colossal torrent of imagery, the best pictures rise to the top.

Our top ten photographs of 2013 celebrate a variety of images from a multitude of photographers, including seasoned photojournalists Tyler Hicks (the Westgate Mall Massacre in Nairobi), Philippe Lopez, (Super Typhoon Haiyan’s destructive wrath upon the Philippines), and John Tlumacki, for his extraordinary coverage of the terror bombing at the Boston Marathon.

The news has introduced to us several emerging photographers this year, including Mosa’ab Elshamy who documented the bloody demonstrations in Cairo’s Rabaa Square, and Daniel Etter, who made an iconic photograph during the Turkish uprising. In late April, activist and photographer Taslima Akhter made the single most haunting photograph of the fire that killed more than 1000 in a Bangladeshi garment factory: a final embrace. Although she has spent months trying to learn the names of the victims shown in that unsettling, moving picture, Akhter has been unable to identify them.

In September, TIME published a set of images recording a brutal execution in Syria; at the time, we withheld the photographer’s name for security reasons. Now, he has decided to come forward for the first time. He is Emin Özmen, a Turkish photographer awarded a World Press Photo prize in 2012 for his images of torture in Aleppo. The execution pictures he made over the course of one day in the midst of the Syrian cataclysm bear witness to that war’s unspeakable, and ongoing, atrocities.

Photographer Peter van Agtmael has spent many years documenting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and their aftermath. In June, he made a touching portrait of an Iraqi war veteran-turned stand-up comedian, Bobby Henline, as part of a photo essay and documentary film for TIME.

Philippine showbiz’s ‘teen queen’ Kathryn Bernardo will open up her heart even more this Saturday (December 28) in “My Only Radio (MOR) 101.9 For Life!” and “MOR TV” (www.MOR1019.com) as she bravely admits how special her love team partner Daniel Padilla is to her.
